Happy pre-Friday to all,

So, digital media libraries, like Hoopla, Kanopy, Overdrive, etc. They're kind of a thing. What I'm wondering is: are they a thing that your library is providing? If so, I have some questions for you (or someone at your library that would be willing to answer some questions)!

  1.  Which media service(s) are you providing or have provided?
  2.  How easy / hard was the service or services to implement and sustain?
  3.  What has been the community response / engagement for the service(s)?
  4.  Do you have any other thoughts that you would like to share about these services?

Your responses are greatly appreciated, and will be used for my nefarious purpose of informing libraries who may be interested in about the collective experience with these services.

P.S.: Services. Had to say it once more.
